Dogs at the bar, walkers tired and exhilarated, locals on their way home from work, a group of youngsters huddled together in the candlelight and nine real ales at on the bar. We get talking to a couple already drinking who point out the blackboard where the beers are described. Two of us have the beer tapas, 3 X third... More

Let me begin by establishing a few facts, I have visited many places that serve food and ale. I have worked as a waiter. The Poets Corner provides a very friendly welcome with attentive staff who have an interest in your requirements. The staff appear to enjoy their job and this warmth transfers onto the general atmosphere of the pub.... More

As soon as you walk in the front door you just know you're going to have a lovely stay. the atmosphere was friendly and busy without being too busy. Obviously very popular with the locals but it never took me more than a minute or two to get served because there was ample staff on at all times. The one... More

Great pub, great beer and good food, but let down this weekend by the beer festival. Which meant the little things get lost in the enormity of the festival. Things like; no toilet paper in our bedroom, far far too many people in the pub Saturday night, not enough staff behind the bar,(as no voucher system was used to buy... More

We have had several meals at the Old Poets Corner and the food is excellent, so we decided to stay over for a romantic weekend, the staff are wonderful, the room was lovely and as ever the food was excellent. A wonderfully relaxing place to go for a weekend, a meal, or just a drink. Can't wait to get back... More

What a great place. Unspoiled pub. 3 separate rooms each with a welcoming fire. Fantastic range of hand pulled beers. Staff friendly and they let dogs in too. We had a starter as a snack of pork pie, mashed potato and peas with mint and apple jelly. Really tasty and filling for less than what a sandwich would cost. There... More

We visited for two days whilst we checked out a puppy with a local breeder. It was welcoming, the food very good, home cooked, non- pretentious and plentiful, a good variety of beer. I liked the house brewed ones. Pleased to find it dog friendly for when we collect and we may well return to walk the area. They seem... More

We stayed here for one night as it was a little treat to ourselves for our wedding anniversary, Ashover, a picturesque Derbyshire village being a 25 minute drive from home. We first visited The Old Poets a couple of years ago and fell in love with the bar/dining area's, with 3 open fires, gorgeous home cooked food, quaint and cosy... More

The pub itself is excellent --good plateful of well priced food --plenty of choice with the beer and whilst a good number of ciders on the list with well known names could do with dropping the lower % types in favour of say Millwhites -- Gwynt y Draig - Janets Jungle Juice etc Rooms --small but very clean and attractive...

Great accommodation on the edge of the Peak District ! Spent a three night break here with friends in order to enjoy some winter walking. Although the weather was not brilliant the thought that we could return to accommodation next door to a CAMRA pub where lots of real ale warmed the soul, was a real treat and made every... More
